School aged children need safe care during school holidays, right through the primary years and often into the first couple of years of secondary education.

Holiday Playschemes are usually based in or near schools, and some nurseries offer after school care too.  A Holiday Playscheme  is a safe and secure place for children to go during the summer holidays  for a few hours to engage in fun and play activities, or relax in a quiet corner reading.

Activities are planned so that your child can relax, learn, play and have fun with their friends. The pick-up time is usually 6pm, and some offer breakfast club facilities from 8am for parents who start work before normal school hours. Some services run before and after 8am-6pm, opening both in the morning and afternoon. Holiday Playschemes are run in the school holidays.
